Akai SynthStation25 Unboxing Photos

Box front

Back of box

The SynthStation25 itself

The keyboard and instruction pack (of course I haven’t opened that bit)!

With the batteries

Power connector and button

Volume line out and phones socket

This little connector fits into the iPod dock connector in the SynthStation25 to keep it from getting dusty I guess.

More when I’ve had a play with it.

Correction to Jasuto Classic update and pricing

My mistake on the last post on Jasuto Classic. Here’s the forum sticky that explains new pricing and differences between the two versions:

Admittedly in the past, the differences between the Classic and Pro versions weren’t as clear as they should have been. With the 1.3.0 update I’m hoping to solve this by making them nearly identical except for just a few key features.

Bellow is text from the Classic version’s description listing the differences, simply, the biggest difference is the Pro version runs natively on the iPad.


-you can’t create any of the FFT or OSC modules, however you can still load any scenes that use them.
-Sonoma’s Audio Copy/Paste is removed.
-no native iPad support, which means low-res graphics and less screen real-estate on iPads.

This virtually upgrades all current Classic users to the Pro version (or a lot closer than before), and all current Pro user to a Universal version 🙂

The new pricing with be:

$5 for Classic
$10 for Pro
